talk you down, the script

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , — crossedfingers @ 8:32 am

the-script_huge3Taking shortcuts through the alleys. While your racing through my mind. Cops can chase but they won’t catch me. Not before I get to speak my mind. If there’s still time.

Just a cigarette gone. No you couldn’t be that far. I’m driving in my car where I hope you are. Maybe I can talk you down. Maybe I can talk you down. 

Oh, we’re standing on a tiny ledge. Before this goes over the edge. Gonna use my heart and not my head. And try to open up your eyes. This is relationship suicide.

‘Cause if you go, I go. ‘Cause if you go, I go. ‘Cause if you go, I go. ‘Cause if you go, I go.

-Talk You Down, The Script

I think this song speaks for itself already. Oh, I just love songs with great melodies and awesome lyrics.

heartless, kris allen

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , — crossedfingers @ 11:31 am


In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless..
How could you be so heartless?
Oh.. How could you be so heartless?

In the night, I hear ’em talk. the coldest story ever told. Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless. How could you be so heartless? Oh.. How could you be so heartless?

How could you be so, cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo. Just remember that you talkin’ to me though. You need to watch the way you talkin’ to me, yo. I mean after all the things that we’ve been through. I mean after all the things we got into. Hey yo, I know of some things that you ain’t told me. Hey yo, I did some things but that’s the old me. And now you wanna get me back and you gon’ show me. So you walk around like you don’t know me. You got a new friend, well I got homies. But in the end it’s still so lonely.

-Heartless, Kris Allen

The original version of this song done by Kanye West is just okay. It is usually played in clubs in the metro and that’s it. However, when Kris Allen, the newest American Idol, performed it on stage during the Top 3, the song ultimately became the best song cover ever performed throughout the season. Majority of the American Idol critics share the same sentiment and most actually believe that it is the most artistic performance ever since it is one of those performances wherein the cover is actually much, much better than the original. So there you go, just click on the link to see the video.

everybody knows, john legend

Filed under: Music — Tags: , — crossedfingers @ 8:22 am

john_legend_evolverIt gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain. I’m trying to find the words to say, please say. It’s written all over my face, I can’t. Function the same when you’re not here. I’m calling your name and no one’s there.

And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy. I still can’t believe you found somebody new. But I wish you the best, I guess.

‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows. How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt. We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows. Just how to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try. One more try. One more try. ‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows.

-Everybody Knows, John Legend

This is another John Legend song that has been my LSS this whole month of January. Of course, Errica made me love this song. I has a good melody and the lyrics are awesome. Although I must say that the lyrics does not necessarily have to reflect what I’m feeling right now because I’m pretty much messed up right now. Anyway, enjoy the song.

cross the line, john legend

john_legend_evolverOnly just a friend the love story begins. Now here’s a happy ending to believe in. You’re always there for me, now you’re with me in my dreams. It’s got me wondering if you ever dream of me. I don’t wanna risk losing everything. But I’ll take the chance and tell you what I’m thinking.

Girl, you’ve been my best friend. Can we put this to bed then? Tonight’s the night to cross the line. Baby won’t you be mine. Not just my home girl. Time that I take you home girl. Tonight’s the night to cross the line. Let me love you tonight. 

I … I … I … 

– Cross the Line, John Legend

This song has been playing in my mind like crazy. It was introduced to me by my friend, Errica, who is a die-hard fan of John Legend. Ever since then, we sing this song together without minding the number of people who could literally hear our crazy voices and the place we were at. Haha. Anyway, I so love the lyrics of this song. So there…just enjoy!

say (all i need), OneRepublic

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , — crossedfingers @ 2:43 pm

onerepublic_dreamingoutloudDo you know where your heart is? Do you think you can find it? Or did you trade it for something, somewhere, better just to have it? Do you know where your love is? Do you think that you lost it? You felt it so strong but nothing’s turned out how you want it.

Well bless my soul, You’re a lonely soul. ‘Cause you won’t let go of anything you hold. “Well, all I need is the air I breathe and a place to rest my head”

Do you think I can find it? Do you think you can find it? Do you think you can find it (yeah), Better than you had it?

-Say (All I Need), OneRepublic

I have been a fan of OneRepublic’s music ever since they released their song Apologize, which apparently gave them their much awaited break in the international music scene. Now, this song called Say (All I Need) has been my LSS these past few days and I’m pretty sure you will like it, too!

i’m yours, the script

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , , — crossedfingers @ 2:12 am


You touch these tired eyes of mine. And map my face out line by line. And somehow growing old feels fine. I listen close for I’m not smart. You wrap you thoughts in works of art. And they’re hanging on the walls of my heart. 

I may not have the softest touch. I may not say the words as such. And though I may not look like much. I’m yours. And though my edges may be rough. And never feel I’m quite enough. It may not seem like very much. But I’m yours.

-I’m Yours, The Script

This song is one of those songs which has the ability to make me feel relax and sad at the same time. The combination of the song’s melancholic melody and right-on lyrics unconsciously makes me think about how my life could have been had I been less insecure and more confident of myself. Yeah, I know. It’s kind of emo-ish, but what the heck. I’m sure you’ll like this song, too!

the man who can’t be moved, the script

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , — crossedfingers @ 12:38 pm

39Going back to the corner where I first saw you. Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I’m not gonna move. Got some words on cardboard got your picture in my hand. Saying if you see this girl can you tell her where I am. Some try to hand me money they don’t understand. I’m not…broke I’m just a broken hearted man. I know it makes no sense, but what else can I do. How can I move on when I’m still in love with you…

Cos if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me. And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be. Thinking maybe you’d come back here to the place that we’d meet. And you’d see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.

So I’m not moving…I’m not moving.

-The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, The Script

If you’re into some feel-good, pop-rock music, then you better listen to this song by an Irish band called The Script. I’m so addicted to this song that I listen to it everyday. I guess it’s primarily due to the fact that it just brings a different kind of feeling to me whenever I hear this song.

(another song) all over again, justin timberlake

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , — crossedfingers @ 3:56 pm

justin-timberlake-futuresexlovesounds-front1I’m not a saint. I’m just a man. Who let heaven and earth in the palm of his hand. But I threw it away. So now I stand here today asking forgiveness. And if you could just

Please give me another chance. To write you another song. Take back those things I’ve done. Cause I’ll give you my heart. If you would let me start all over again.

-(Another Song) All Over Again, Justin Timberlake

The words speak for itself.

I firmly believe that second chances are only given to those who deserve it. And guess what; don’t even consider yourself qualified because I’m already tired of your apologies and nonsensical words. You know who you are!

chasing pavements, adele

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , — crossedfingers @ 4:29 pm


I’ve made up my mind. Don’t need to think it over. If I’m wrong I am right. Don’t need to look no further. This ain’t lust. I know this is love

But if I tell the world I’ll never say enough ’cause it was not said to you. And that’s exactly what I need to do if I end up with you.  

Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements. Even if it leads nowhere or would it be a waste. Even if I knew my place should I leave it there. Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements. Even if it leads nowhere 

-Chasing Pavements, Adele

This song has been playing in my mind these past few days. Adele’s unique sound provides and leaves a different feeling to me that I just can’t help but feel good about everything.

I still don’t know how to insert an audio file here, so I suggest that you search the song in Youtube or wherever. In any way, click here for the Youtube link.
